The mosquito most common for transmitting West Nile virus is the Culex tarsalis.

Certain mosquito-borne diseases, like Yellow Fever and Zika virus, pose special risks to travelers.

There were 40 human cases and one death in MI past year.

On Tuesday, the Canyon County officials made an announcement that the mosquitoes which were collected near Parma test positive for the West Nile Virus.

People who work in outdoor occupations or like to spend time outdoors are at increased risk for West Nile virus infection from mosquito bites.

With summer right around the corner, more mosquitoes are starting to come out. This mosquito is most active just before sundown and throughout the night into the early morning hours.

After a meeting in Washington , Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declared the trade war "on hold" and the tariffs suspended. Stock markets dropped in Europe and the USA after the announcement with investors concerned about a possible trade war.

West Nile is picked up after mosquitos feed on a bird that is infected with the virus.

Last year, 40 Michiganders were diagnosed with West Nile virus, with one dying as a result of the illness.

The test reports are still a little surprising as the Treasure Valley has not yet witnessed high temperatures in the recent days, he further said. Insect repellant containing DEET is also recommended.

Wear light colored long-sleeve shirts and long trousers. Good safeguards include installing or repairing screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out and emptying standing water from flower pots, gutters, buckets, pet dishes, tires and bird baths. Consult a physician before using repellents on infants. If you have a child, make sure that they wear clothing that covers their arms and legs. Fix or replace screens that have tears or other openings.

People are also encouraged to mosquito-proof their homes.
